foreign policy and protests in the middle east between governor romney and president obama. joining us is john dickerson of cbs. >> the long-standing tradition that in campaigns politics stops at the water's edge, senator van den berg's quote that may be a little bit outdated but romney jumped in so fast here that it was just kind of breaking with the normal tradition. but there is another point here which is i talked to a very senior military man last night who said first reports are always wrong. the reason you hold back for a minute is you just know the news is going to change. and in this case iting chad there were more deaths. and so romney's statement looked out of sync with the mourning and the shock that was going on when everybody woke up on wednesday morning. >> rose: we continue with a look at that and more with david brooks of "the new york times". and it underlines i think a problem with romney, which he is just not a philosophical guy. you know, the people who know him well like him. they say he's a good manager. he just doesn't have philosophical interests. >> rose: we c
: we continue this evening with jeffrey, the book of the oath, the obama white house and the supreme court. >> 17 chief justice, 44th president, two people who in some respects have a lot in common, rn within s years of each other, both came of age in the think area, both products of harvard law school and the hear extraordinary la law review but both of them, and both of them real students of the constitution. but that is where the similarities end because roberts coming from his very conservative background, very stable background, is a true conservative, and he believes that the constitution neeth to change the irony is one believes in change and one really believes in stability and it is roberts is the one who wants change. >> rose: we conclu this evening with karen elliott house, a pulitzer recipient for covering the middle east. >> on saudi arabia. >> so i think the country has problems, all of these problems of unemployment, wealth distribution, housing, poverty in a country that has got that much money, and those are not going to get better without some real younger energeti
. and therefore you can see that tension right now. i mean, basically, you know, obama calls morsi and says "what's going on inside our m.b.a. baahsy? we're trying to figure out whether to give you a billion dollars in debt relief and that's not ing to happen if you guys burn dour our embassy." and he's torn. my constituents, my party wants me to be on the top of the embassy raising the islamic flag and meanwhile i beter get this billion dollars from the americans. so that tension will be there for a long time. what is the ideal conclusion? that the muslim brotherhood sees it as its role to lead a reformation. that it really is the bridge to modernity. that is the-- that would be, i think, the ideal outcome of this and that will take a long time. the sad outcome is that you get what you got in iran which is sort of a cpetition among these groups for who can be the most extreme, the most far right. and egypt has to sort of navigate modernity without oil and without i would argue progressive modernist agenda. >> rose: will saudi arabia remain untouched because they've got so much money to both divi
-- dry up the money by 2016. if what i think is going to happen happens and president obama wins, i think that too will break the logjam for a different reason. as senator mcconnell says their number one goal for the last four years has been denying him a second term. as soon as he gets that, they can't deny him a third term. he can't have one anyway. so i think you will see, i will just make a prediction. i think in the lame duck session they will avoid the fiscal cliff, they will reach an agreement-- . >> rose: by extending it, by some kind of an extension or by making a deal. >> they'll either make a deal or they will have a short extension which makes it clear this is not another year, i predict that you will get a budget deal early next year f not in this lame duck session. and i think you'll see them start to work together. it is going to be a different world. >> rose:ecause the electn wi hav that kind of consequence. >> absolutely. >> one of romney's top foreign policy advisors said the other day that obama has made the united states look impo nent the world. dot facts bear that ou
